As we have no new news here some old news which we haven't yet on the forum (at least I couldn't find it). Anyone remembers the event  Very Happy

Great game. Kentucky had been dominating all tournament, and Syracuse wasn't playing its best (they had some players out for injuries, I think, too). So it was supposed to be a cakewalk for Kentucky, and for a while it looked that way, but Syracuse gave them a real run in the second half and got to within 4 points in the final minute, I think.

The Syracuse coach (a whiner I can't stand) had been Pitino's assistant, so that was one of the backstories of the game.

I don't like the Kentucky Wildcats, so that's probably the one thing George Clooney and I would always disagree on.

Yes saw those glasses too  Razz 

@Way2old4dis you are really well educated if it comes to basketball  Very Happy  Good that you found one way to disagree with George so you have a reason to "convince " George with you charm to support the other team  Give hearts

Yeah, I'm a geek that way. But not as much as I used to be.

George looks so young and innocent in that pic, doesn't he?

@Nicky thanks for picture, very nice. 
I think that it is a bit more difficult for him to go to that kind of public place, like he didn't almost 20 years ago. That has been one of thing that he misses, anonymity.

So I'm a U of K basketball girl.  I can't get over Rick Pitino leaving U of K and ultimately going to U of L.  It's like a Hatfield marrying a McCoy.  Furthermore, I was THERE at the game in the Meadowlands in NJ covering it as a reporter and was releaged to "fan reaction" and didn't get my chance to meet Mr. Clooney.  HUMP Sad  Also - I know Julie Hermann who was the one who sealed the deal at Louisville who is now at Rutgers in NJ.  There is a great sports story like you mentioned with the back stories. She gave me all the backstory on Pitino - facinating!  Oh wait, this is a Clooney thread!  Don't kick me off!
